The Coati.

Postby OARRIAGA2001 » Mon Apr 10, 2006 3:13 am

I'm back to drawing animals.  Again! 

Well, I love them anyway, specially small animals.  Oh, and all the canid family, the felines.  Nah, what the heck.  I like them all! :)

This is a piece I did on Alias sketchbook, tonight.   Enjoy!


I got tired and didn't finish it.   Maybe some other day.

Wow. Speechless.

I don't think you can improve on this.  If you did, well, I can only assume it'd be photograph-like quality.  I mean... this is so real-like... the eyes are so full of life, as is the rest of it.  This is top-notch quality.


But you want critique?  Okay...uhh...add a background, ya lazy bum! ;)

Feels kinda pointless since I don't actually do stuff at Gaia, so I'm putting it here.

Very cute!  I like the subtle emotion in the eyes and ears. :)

For some reason this picture reminded me of a bunch of old books by Gerald Darrell I liked to read again and again in my childhood. :)
I agree with everyone else, the drawing is cute and very impressive. Great work, Omar!

Thanks a lot for all the replies, guys.  An artist does need some kind of motivation once in a while; even if being lazy, right Alex? ;D  I appreciate all you comments, suggestions, everything. Like the idea of adding a background.  Whew! I think my hand will need some ice tonight again.  ;)

At the time I wasn't able to say anything constructive. Various reasons, not least of which is the fact that you're simply better than I am, so I'd feel a bit cheeky telling you what to do. :)

I can only point out minor errors anyway, even giving it a through going over, and I imagine most of these are simply because I'm unfamiliar with the animal in question. The nose, for instance, seems to be a little crooked, specifically one of the nostrils seems to come in a little higher than the other, making it look like it's twisted at the end. And its left eye (our right) seems a bit... odd. But apart from that I can't really see anything wrong with it.

Kinda cute too... :)

Thanks for the comments, Graham.   And no, I'm not better than you, man.  We just have 2 different styles, thats all.   

Its all a matter of opinions.  Remember that you have posted lots of nice tutorials around the forum.

Now come on, you shouldnt be afraid to admit that you're better than someone. I think nobody here will get angry over it!
Yeah, you can use the "different style" explanation to avoid doing comparisons and yes, i still didnt see anyone on gfwc pulling out such kind of realistic animals depiction, but this one simply rocks! It's professional level, and i dont understand why you're still not working at some art studio. Move, go :D I dont have any critic to give here, this is the wrong place.

I remain speechless to think someone i know and talk with came up with this :) I feel even kinda proud.

I don't know what to say. Gee, I appreciate such flattery.  I never knew it would give such impact.  Now, I'm definatelly going to do more!  A little bit more complex animals, this time (complex meaning in the way it is drawn)

Thanks, Simpreal!  ;)
